*Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Life Sciences* - Institute of Biology

*2 Postdoctoral research fellows in ERC-funded project BacNanoMachine (m/f/d)*

The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is one of eleven German universities that have been awarded the ‘University of Excellence’ status since 2012. Located at the Institute of Biology, our research group investigates fundamental, molecular mechanisms in bacterial cell biology. The model system of our research is a remarkably complex, self-assembling nanomachine: the bacterial flagellum of Salmonella enterica. Flagella mediate motility of Salmonella and are by far the most prominent extracellular structure known in bacteria. We use a combination of genetic engineering, biochemistry and quantitative fluorescent microscopy techniques to understand the genetic regulation, self-assembly and protein export mechanisms of this fascinating nanomachine.

Job description: Full-time employment - E 13 TV-L HU (third-party funding, fixed-term for 3 years with the possibility of extension). Scientific services in research within the ERC-funded project BacNanoMachine (‚Reconstructing the coordinated self-assembly of a bacterial nanomachine’), especially investigation of the underlying principles that allow bacteria to control and coordinate the self-assembly processes of multi-component nanomachines, performing quantitative single-cell gene expression analyses, re-engineering of the genetic network and biophysical modeling in order to develop a biophysical model of flagella self-assembly.

Requirements: Doctoral degree (PhD) in microbiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics or related fields; experience in microbiology, microscopy, bioinformatics and/or bacterial genetics will be considered as an advantage; knowledge of a scripting language and Python is a plus; candidates should have published in peer-review journals and a strong interest in bacterial cell biology; excellent English communication skills (written and spoken).

Applications (with cover letter, CV, statement of research interests, relevant certificates and the names of previous supervisors/referees) should be sent until July 31st, 2020 quoting the reference number *DR/101/20* to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Faculty of Life Sciences, Institute of Biology, Prof. Dr. Marc Erhardt (Sitz: Philippstr. 13), Unter den Linden 6, 10099 Berlin or preferably as a single PDF document to marc.erhardt@hu-berlin.de.
